After running a store beta test earlier this month, Xiaomiâ€™s Mi Store is nearly ready to exit beta.
Xiaomi says that its Mi Store will officially launch in the US, UK, France, and GermanyÂ on June 1/June 2. The store will open up on at 7:00 pm PDT/10:00 pm EDT on June 1 in the U.S. and at 1:00 pm CEST on June 2 in Europe.
As with its previous beta test, Xiaomiâ€™s Mi Store will only sell accessories, so youâ€™re going to have to keep waiting for that Xiaomi phone. The Mi Store will offer 5000mAh and 10400mAh Mi Power Banks for $9.99 and $13.99, respectively, a Mi Band for $14.99, and a pair of Mi Headphones for $79.99.
Lots of us in the US and Europe would love to get our hands on some Xiaomi smartphones, but for now weâ€™ll have to settle to consistently having access to Xiaomiâ€™s accessories. Thatâ€™s not a bad thing, though, because they all look nice and theyâ€™re relatively affordable. Plus, Xiaomi can use this initial launch to establish itself in these markets and get its name out there, and hopefully thatâ€™ll lead to more products being added in the future.
